Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The city's first gastronomical tapas tour, The Barcelona Taste is about food. And lots of it! On this 2-3 hour food tour we stop in 3-4 small food establishments in either the famous Gothic or the lovely Gracia neighborhoods of Barcelona. Our venues range from high-quality specialty shops to home-style tapas restaurants, each one with its own scrumptious specialties for you to taste. A knowledgeable and very friendly guide will safely lead you through this labyrinth of a neighborhood, all the while sharing stories about Barcelona life, food, and history. You will enjoy all the cuisine, and, due to the small size of the group, you will also enjoy a more personal, relaxed experience.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase, Bathroom facilities

“Great fun!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Great experience and opportunity to explore neighborhoods that aren't typically explored by tourist. All the food was Delicious and loved the variety. Joe was very knowledgeable about Barcelona and even provided us some additional activities to do while in the city. Overall would recommend to anyone visiting!

“Easy 5-Stars...don't miss this tour in Barcelona!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

This is such an easy 5-star review!!! There's not a lot to say other than just book this, show up, and enjoy. You won't regret it.

Just a tip: we were happy that we booked this on our first night in Barcelona, because our guide gave us some incredibly restaurant recommendations AND later in the trip we went back on our own to 2 of the stops on the tour because we just hadn't had enough of them!

“Fun Night in Barcelona”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We absolutely loved this tour. The guides were fun and very in tune with their guests. We felt like we truly had ad a taste of both Spanish and Catalonian tapas. There were 4 of us and we all would definately recommend this.

“What a great night out”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

My husband and I wanted to experience an authentic night out in Barcelona enjoying local food and wine. So decided not to book one of the larger main stream tour companies and to go with a smaller locals company Barceloan Taste, I liked the way they described their tour online and we were definitely not disappointed. Our tour guides Dave and Catherine were great, they took us off the main drag and went to smaller family run businesses and had authentic tapas and drinks. We met other travellers seeking a similar experience and all had a fun night together. Would highly recommend Barcelona Taste, brilliant night out enjoying authentic food, culture with new friends.

“Fabulous Evening of Eating/Drinking/Laughing!”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

It was a fabulous evening learning about and eating/drinking the local foods in little places we would have never found. The Jo's were so much fun to be with--I don't think any of the folks in our wonderful group wanted the evening to end. As promised, we received emails the next day on various recommendations and we managed to get to a few--which were great. Highly recommend doing this at the beginning of your time in Barcelona, so you can take advantage of this. A super experience - wish I could do it again!
